Staying up to date on Lucid

Asked by osterchrisi on 2011-04-30


I know this might be a really stupid question but: How can I stay updated with the latest stable release on Lucid? I once tried to play around a bit with Bazaar but I really don't get how to use it.
Since I work with Lucid Lynx, I'm kina stuck with KiCad version 20090216 from my repositories.

I would super appreciate any help as how to stay updated with the latest stable releases please!
Thanks a lot!

You can try rebuilding the .deb packages, as shown here.

Download the three files from the Oneiric repository, the .orig.tar.gz the .diff.tar.gz and the .dsc file into the same folder

open a terminal, then change to that folder using the "cd" command.

Now run

dpkg-source -x *dsc

This will download the correct package to rebuild. If you "apt-get source kicad" you will get the version from your current repo.
